    nah jk

    but it is about crunching, as i love what crunching does, and stands for.

    so here we go, this is NOT gonna be done quick so be patient

    i have this bookshelf thingie at my place that i was about to throw out, but then i thought, hey, i can fit a mb in there along with a psu and a hd in every single little room :toast:

    this is the bookshelf thingie

    [​IMG]

    what im gonna do is first to find 8 mb trays,

    mount them on the side, like this :
    [​IMG]
    hope you can see where im getting

    mounting it like that will make better room for the stuff, and as you can see there is room for 8 crunchers in total,

    i will buy the parts little by little, maybe get some donated harddrives etc,

    it isnt gonna be i7s etc, but just some duallys and quaddys i find for cheaps,

    there is also gonne be added some doors to it to make the noise go away, and then alot of fans:laugh:

    hope you crunching guys like it,
    i do, will get back to this as soon as i get my dremel thingie with saw blades:D

    The thinking of a true genious! I like your idea but i'm not too sure about mounting the mobo's sideways. Can you not just keep them like you have the one in the pic? Upgrading would certainly be easier that way :laugh:

    Cruncher & central heating all in one!

    Will get a bit warm in there I think :p

    thanks for the suggestion bro, but when you impoort stuff like that here then you have to pay, and then its not worth it anymore:(

    i would have to pay more for the import cost, like 35$, and thats not with taxes

    thanks for the links, but the total cost with shipping etc will be almost the same as ordering it from a danish shop, well i might save 1-2 £, but that is not worth it if i have to RMA it etc, you know
